About this Event

Made In Harlem: I Remember Harlem

Co-presented by Maysles Documentary Center, The Documentary Forum at CCNY, City College Center For The Arts, and Third World Newsreel

Part 1, The Early Years 1600-1930 (William Miles, 1980, 60 min.)

Part 2: The The Depression Years 1930-1940 (William Miles, 1980, 60 min.)

Though arguably no other New York City neighborhood has generated as many conflicting representations as Harlem, one singular documentary stands out: I Remember Harlem, directed and produced by legendary filmmaker William Miles. Miles’ epic lovingly renders the diverse, 350-year history of Harlem as both a living, breathing neighborhood and as the cultural hub of African-American life.

Post-screening discussion with: Boukary Sawadogo (CCNY Professor of Cinema Studies & Black Studies). Additional panelists TBA.

Reception at 6:00PM. Screening at 6:30PM.

This program is part of: Made In Harlem: Remembering The Renaissance (February – June 2020)

Made In Harlem: Remembering The Renaissance, on the occasion of the Harlem Renaissance’s landmark 100th anniversary uses the wide-ranging lens of documentary film to capture and commemorate, explore and expand the many layers of experience that made up--and continue to make up--the Harlem Renaissance. The series brings together a variety of mostly nonfictional film sources to examine visual representations of the Renaissance and the lasting influence of these representations on political and artistic output, collective memory, present-day black experiences, and the Harlem of today.

Additional screenings TBA at www.maysles.org

This series is generously supported by the West Harlem Development Corporation.
